Organization's Description:

We are developing underwater robots that track the flow of accidental oil spills or plankton red tides, relaying their movement automatically in real-time to land-based stations, or that incorporate the movement of a fish's pectoral fins for precise maneuverability in wave and water currents. We are also doing analytical researches on dynamics of underwater robots using computational fluid dynamics, and dynamics of a deepwater riser for deepwater drilling, on which various forces act.
